Connecting College, Careers, Inner City Teens and Golf

On Monday, July 16, 20 to 30 graduate students from Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin, will come to Chicago for a three day Chicago experience, where they will host a summer learning workshop for our Cabrini Connections teens. You can read about this on the Cabrini Blog. This connection is intended to help Edgewood students learn about working with inner city kids, while helping our teens build aspirations and habits that help them succeed in school, then move to college, and then careers.

We cannot host this connection, or keep Cabrini Connections in business each year, without donations from many different people and organizations. That's why the Jimmy Biggs Memorial Cabrini Connections Golf Benefit is so important. Jimmy was a 4th grader when he joined the tutoring program hosted by Montgomery Ward back in the late 1980s. He stayed with us through high school and then became part of the Cabrini Connections staff. His vision was that he could recruit 100 business leaders to be supporters of Cabrini Connections and the Tutor/Mentor Connection. He died in 2000, before he could make that vision a reality. Since Jimmy helped organize the 1995 to 2000 golf benefits, we've named this event in his honor, and to keep his vision alive.

Without the money raised through events like this there is no tutor/mentor program, and kids like Jimmy and the students from Edgewood, along with our many volunteers, would never connect.

If you can help support us with a donation, or by playing in the golf benefit on July 19, you're helping many lives be changed. Learn more at

What do our readers think about this suggestion? Do you think we should put ads on our blog? We're a non profit and are always searching for money.

I'd like to hear from other non profits. Do you think this is a good idea?
